User experience

  • Logon requirement type: Configures when the application can be installed to client device. When set to Default, the Configuration Manager value is set by Recast during application packaging, but on almost every application the installation can be done whether or not the user is logged on. Other values are Only When User Logged On, Only When No User Logged On or Whether Or Not User Logged On.
  • Maximum allowed runtime: Sets the longest time the application install should run. The default is 120 minutes.
  • Estimated installation time: Sets the estimated installation time. This value is visible for the end user in software center. The default is 0.


  • Add operating system requirements: Application Manager will automatically add operating system requirements for applications by default. You can disable this behavior by setting to false.
